Great visit

Great work and interesting boat trip. It was raining a lot and that did detract from the experience but nothing anyone can do about the weather.

hi their, we had a good time walking the track and boat ride. Everything was good, the only thing I would say is that when we went up mount Haszard, at the top the track this was a little confusing whether we were going the right way, we were as it turns out. If your waiting for the boat or the bus at the lake maybe a toilet there especially if you have elderly or small children would be handy. Oh we did have an idea, maybe to put a time on the or near the B bus stop and or where the track continues, so that anyone walking knows that the rest of the track takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to the lake. Not everyone reads their given material.

Welcoming friendly staff. Well maintained walk way. Lots of great information on the area. Definitely need the two hours to walk the track. (We are a fit family who normally complete walks well ahead of schedule).

I loved it here, will totally do it again and direct all visitors here. I'm just guttered it took me so long to discover this experience. Photos do it no justice at all.
